LEFT A MESS VINCENNES, Ind. (AP) It's a fine way to give thanks for a free meal. Thieves who broke into the Lincoln High School and took a small amount of cash from an office and two pencil machines stopped in a home economics room long enough to fix themselves breakfast. "They didn't even wash their dirty dishes," a disgruntled school official complained. Progress reported in trade bill talks WASHINGTON (AP) Three senators who have opposed passage of a trade bill to insist on free emigration for Soviet Jews said today after meeting with President Ford that there are indications the problem can be solved and the bill passed. "We're moving in the direction of an agreement and there has been significant Soviet movement," said Sen. Henry M. Jackson, D-Wash. "We're getting off dead center," said Sen. Abraham Ribi- coff, D-Conn. Sen. Jacob Javits, R-N.Y., said they agreed the role of the President was a decisive one in the situation and predicted the ; negotiations now under way • will be successful and a trade bill "can be passed." The three senators emerged from an hour-long breakfast meeting with Ford and Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger to tell reporters that Ford's "direct participation ... and intervention" in the matter had given them new hope that the Jewish emigration issue, which has stalemated the trade reform bill, may now be resolved. Jackson said there is no 1 " movement to give Presidert Ford certain discretionary authority in the trade bill presumably to grant the Soviets most- favored-nation treatment and tariff improvements in return for some assurances of freer Jewish emigration and an end to what he described as harassment of Soviet Jews and the limitation of the au/abers permitted to leave their homeland. These provisions will be included in the bill, Jackson said. In his speech Monday night to a joint session of Congress, Ford stressed the importance he places on passage of a trade reform bill in the interest of world peace and U.S. economic prosperity. The three senators have led opposition to passage of the bill without the Jewish emigration safeguards and a human rights provision. The President had another busy schedule today. His calling list also included economic advisers, state legislators and county officials. And he planned to swear in John 0. Marsh Jr., a former Virginia Democratic congressman, as his new White House counselor. Ford was getting a warm reception from his visitors in his first week in office, including 15 governors and 16 mayors of both parties who were invited in for meetings Wednesday, They emerged praising Ford's candor, informality and promises to give their problems his personal attention. Gov. Wendell R. Anderson of Minnesota, chairman of the Democratic Governors' Caucus, expressed the new atmosphere : "Once again it's fun to come to Washington," he told reporters. "There was a general warmth ... a refereshing change over what we have felt the last two years when we felt we were cut off," said Mayor Moon Landrieu of New Orleans. Contrasting the sessions with those under former President Richard M. Nixon, Gov. Milton J. Shapp, D-Pa., called it "the difference between the sun shining and a dark day." Ford was touching base from the cities to the Congress. He also had faced continuance of his first international crisis, brought on by the renewal of fighting in Cyprus. After day-long conferences with Kissinger and a transatlantic phone call to British Prime Minister Harold Wilson in the diplomatic maneuverings, Ford concluded as the crisis eased at day's end: "I think we handled it all right."

Famagusta is under attack FAMAGUSTA, Cyprus (AP) -Turkish jets and artillery began pounding this port on the eastern coast of Cyprus today, and Turkish tanks were reported closing in on its outskirts. Turkish Cypriot radio claims thai tanks had actually entered the city were discounted by United Nations soldiers on the scene. U.N. sources said the tanks were advancing on the city from three directions— akng parallel roads traversing the flat Mesaoria Plain and linking Famagusta, the chief port of Cyprus, with the island's capital, Nicosia. The sources said the Turkish tanks had taken Trikomo, on the coast about 10 miles north of Famagusta, and advanced beyond it on the northern road, and had moved east of Lysi on the southern road. Turkish jets screamed over the massive medieval walls of Famagusta's old quarter, where the town's Turkish Cypriots have been holed up since the Turkish invasion July 20. They bombed and strafed positions of the Greek Cypriot national guard around the port area in the shadow of the 40- foot-high walls. The jets also hit the Fam- agusta police headquarters 400 yards from the main entrance to the walled city. The police headquarters is considered the area's most important Greek Cypriot stronghold. Mortar and artillery shells also rained down, their explosions mingling with the constant chatler of machine-gun and small-arms fire coming from all directions. Dense smoke from numerous explosions spread over the city, which used to be the island's main tourist playground. The defending Greek Cypriots appeared to be fighting on two fronts: Against the approaching three-pronged Turkish armor thrusl advancing from the west and the Turkish Cypriot fighters firing from the battlements of the Venetian walls. The area within the walls, with more than 300 medieval churches, forms the living area of Famagusta's permanent Turkish population of about 5,000. This has swelled since the invasion by about 6,000 Turkish Cypriot refugees from villages around Famagusta. "A Good Guy isn't hard to find!
